The Oregon 600 features a transflective colour 3-inch (diagonal) TFT touchscreen display which is also sunlight readable and strengthened for impact resistance too. The TFT display uses both sunlight and its’ LED backlight to control brightness meaning you can conserve power used by the backlight of the device and rely upon the sun light. Plus like the Garmin Montana handheld range, the units screen can be viewed in either landscape or portrait view, simply by holding/turning the unit - giving you the best view on the route, road or water ahead.

The Oregon 600 also has a built-in 3-axis 3D electronic compass, barometric altimeter and wireless connectivity with other compatible Garmin handheld devices. This enables you to wirelessly share geocaches waypoints, tracks and routes with other device owners.

The unit features a WAAS-enabled GPS receiver and GLONASS satellite tracking meaning there are more satellites for the device to lock on to. This will ensure you maintain satellite fix in built-up areas and woodlands.

The device also offers paperless geocaching providing full descriptions, cache photos, hints and logs and can store up to four million geochaches!

This product is a sophisticated electronic device which requires that you read, understand, and act upon the information given in the instruction manual (usually available via the above 'manual' link). You will need internet access and, in accordance with the manufacturers’ recommendations, regularly seek out and accept all firmware or software updates offered by the manufacturer. All GPS devices need to ‘see’ the satellites in the sky. Therefore you will need to know that your vehicle does not have glass that will block or impede the GPS signal.
